I am continually astounded by the horrendous errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, etc. that I see daily on Talk Bass. I give a pass to anybody from a country where English is not the first language. I am wondering how much of this is due to laziness vs. a general lack of English skills. I believe that, generally speaking in today's world, IM'ing, texting, etc. has made breaking rules and taking shortcuts acceptable. Is this "shotgun English" considered acceptable in a user forum such as Talk Bass?
